At Happy Times Childcare and Preschool we consider ourselves part of your family and community, striving to care for your child as you do.
The Directors, Pauline and Steve have three grown up children and nine grandchildren. They know how important it is that only the highest quality of care is provided for your children. The Centre offers care and education for children aged
0-5 years. We are committed to maintaining a stimulating programme and to creating an open caring atmosphere that supports both children and their families. We respect individual needs and differences and aim to provide high self esteem and healthy relationships between children families and staff.
We know that teachers are the most important factor in a successful preschool environment. We endeavour to employ staff of the highest quality and training. This has been recognised by the Ministry of Education who have granted us “Quality Provider” status. View our reports here. Happy Times Childcare and Preschool offers a balanced mix of structured learning and free play experiences. Children are given opportunities to experience a supportive and challenging environment in an age appropriate manner.
